The University of West Georgia’s new online Masters in Music Education has provided opportunities and tools for our students to develop critical thinking skills that they, in turn, apply in the teaching profession. Online journals, discussions, peer-review assignments, and synchronous student presentations help students develop transferable skills of analysis, synthesis, and evaluation. Students apply these skills to other course activities as well as in their classrooms. The online environment includes diverse tools for students of different learning styles and provides instructors additional opportunities to guide student learning. Instructors and students in this program have seen positive growth in student engagement This presentation may be of interest to those teaching seeks increased critical thinking in an online environment. Presenters include instructors, alumni, and current students of this program.
